A British world champion cyclist has injured himself, but not during a steep up-hill ride or while navigating a winding French road. No, the injury occurred during... ahem... a Wii gaming session.

Mark Cavendish, who won four stages of this year’s Tour de France, was playing a snowboarding game on his Wii when he slipped off the balance board and damaged his calf muscle, according to a EuroSport report.

“It’s a pain,” said Cavendish. “I may have to visit a medic to try and get it sorted out.”

The championship cyclist was forced to cut a training session short last week because of his Wii-related injury.

Numerous reports have sprung up since the Wii’s launch in 2006 of gamers supposedly hurting themselves during frantic gaming sessions. Nintendo introduced a soft silicone jacket for the console’s Remote back in 2007, and Panasonic cashed in with the launch of a Wiimote-proof TV earlier this year.
